Hello and welcome!
To start off with, let me explain that the layout here is a bit different than your normal forum. By that, I mean that instead of areas, which get confusing when you have a tight story plot, this is sectioned off into chapters. I'll direct you to the newest "chapter" after your character is made, so don't worry about losing yourself. (Edit: The chapter system is ending now, and threads are separated. Once some of them get going, I'll do my best to direct you to a very active/less active thread based on your expected participation)
Also, I will at some point be making a small computer game based on the rp here, so I'd appreciate it if you would tell me whether or not I may use your character- if you don't want to or don't reply, I won't post it so don't panic there.
Be sure to read all information given before making a character and allow me or a moderator to approve your character and direct you to the active topic before beginning your rp, in case there are problems with your character sheet. We won't refuse your character entirely, but we may ask you to change a few things.
And finally, I would like to note that "Supporting Characters" is just my title for the topic. Anyone that is voiced by more than one person goes there- whether they're main characters or minor.
Some places to check out: Summary will fill you in on what's been going on, Locations gives some ideas for where characters are from/going to, Elements gives a rundown of what magic is used here, and Updates will include changes to the forum
Now, for a few simple rules:
1.) No god powers. In other words, no one invincible or undefeatable, or even one with no weaknesses or flaws. It can be really annoying.
2.) No killing someone else's character without their permission. And no permanent scars/missing limbs unless permission is given.
3.) Don't leave people out of a post. If three people are in the middle of a conflict and one has to, say, eat dinner, the other two should not leave them out. Like in a story, characters do not just fade into the background or vanish. Give them a few days, and if they still don't show, say something like "Bob ran off to investigate a sound up ahead" or something like that, so they can have a chance to reenter later on.
4.) No swearing or mature content- that way if someone younger is on we don't scar them or get them into trouble. Please. T rating is fine, but no further, kay?
5.) No harassing people. No insulting them for anything, especially what's gone on outside of the forums. If you have any trouble talk to me first, before taking action. Courtesy is a beautiful thing.
6.) Tell all your friends! The more peoples the merrier! If you advertise, I will find ways to repay you. Like advertising for YOU.
7.) Don't pretend this doesn't exist. Be at least somewhat courteous- don't badger people for imperfect spelling/grammar or getting confused if they're new at this, and don't come here looking for a fight. I am NOT afraid to ban people for this violation. There are other people here, not just blocks of text.
8.) It's okay to misspell a few things, so long as you get your point across, and if you want, ask a moderator to proof things for you, but dont talk in txt plz, unless you're in a chatroom. It's not only annoying (especially since it is a website for WRITERS), it's hard to understand. Proper grammar helps too, unless your character is a six-year-old.
9.) I'll put this again because apparently some people didn't notice previous rules. PM me if you have a problem. I WILL NOT tolerate anyone who attempts to be a moderator and deal with it by themselves. I CAN and WILL remove any and all comments posted accusing others of god-modding or even less serious offenses (Besides simple things like: Excuse me sir, hasn't Jim been standing on his head for far too long without falling. Or something similar but less ridiculous) unless they are sent via PM first. If someone comments accusingly and tries to get my attention after I delete the post, my response will be "I'm sorry, what are you talking about?" So far, things have been pretty clean, but as soon as I get one comment, more will start coming, and I won't deal with it. I love all of you guys, but seriously, please act mature.
Thank you and have fun!1/06/2010 . Edited 5/31/2011 #1
As a separate notice, I will point out what this forum was designed to be: a sandbox. Characters have been vampires, phoenixes, demons, etc., and the elements list is constantly being edited. If you have a suggestion, send it to me or post it in "announcements/chat/related forum." Magic in this world is left up to the imagination of the user, so I won't limit the world to just MY imagination. Feel free to add locations and elements and characters- I'll look over them and tell you if they're okay, but they usually are. And you'll get credit too, don't worry.
Well, that's all,
